Fethard started very well with a great by Kevin Hayes who found Richie Carroll in support and Richie sprinted clear to score. Declan Doyle landed a fine penalty to leave the half time score 15-8 to Richmond.
Fethard were now dominating exchanges and a fine lineout move saw Chris Bannister score under the post. Doyler converted to leave the score 15-all.
Richmond came back with a penalty but Fethard showed great heart to put the phases together to score the winning try.
